Our first workshop is about taking your students’ recital performances to the next level. J.T. Lee interviews Sara Longwell and Chelsea Smith about their workshop on how to plan recital performances for your students that go way beyond the typical, boring recital fare. They offer some stellar tips for teaching your students to deliver an entertaining, superstar performance for an audience, rather than just “surviving” by getting up on stage and not making any mistakes. Have you seen enough recitals full of panicked looking students that just stiffly get up on stage, make it through their performance, and sit down? Are you ready to wow parents and audiences with recital performances that are actually entertaining to watch (all while making it much more fun for your students)?
